Can I charge stripe fees to my customers?

If you are an Irish business you cannot pass the fees onto B2C purchases. This law also applies to some B2B transactions. In the EU charging processing fees to your customers is prohibited by law. Therefore we recommend you absorb these fees into your pricing model.

If you are located outside the EU then see this post on passing on fees to your customer.  Please look here for more information on restriction on passing on stripe fees to customers. It is your responsibility to act in accordance with applicable law.

How do you calculate the Stripe Fees?

For European cards we take your original invoice and calculate 1.4% + €0.25. We then add Irish VAT rate of 23% to this fee as Stripe will do this when you are an Irish Business using their service. If you are vat registered in Ireland you can claim this vat back.

For international cards we take your original invoice and calculate 2.9% + €0.25 + vat.

For the Stripe Terminal card reader we take your original invoice and calculate 1.4% + €0.10 + vat for European cards and 2.9% + €0.25 + vat for international cards.
